Critical Acclaim

SP90 Wine Spectator Sep 30, 2015

"Broad, generous and lightly oaked, with vanilla and a hint of chocolate gracing the black cherry, leather, almond and tobacco flavors. A firm grip lines the finish. Drink now through 2020. 29,200 cases made." (90 pts.)

VN89 Vinous Sep 2015

"A pretty, open-knit wine, the 2012 CHianti Classico Riserva offers plenty of near-term appeal. Sweet red berries, flowers, spices and mint meld together effortlessly. Medium in body, the 2012 Riserva possesses good mid-palate depth and a radiant, accessible personality." (89 pts.)

RP88 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Oct 2015

"The 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Famiglia Zingarelli is Sangiovese with small percentages of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon added to the blend. The 2012 vintage was a complicated one but the Zingarelli family sourced fruit from different sites to make this wine. They have also just completed a 35-hectare replanting effort. Dark berry fruit, spice and toasted almond give this wine a classic taste profile for Chianti Classico." (88 pts.)

Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.
